Bratislava, Slovakia

Letisko Airport in Bratislava is very small. It has about three gates, and a mostly dirt parking lot that holds a just a few hundred cars. Trying to buy a bus ticket at 11:30PM from a ticket machine that was even confusing native Slovaks. We finally got on the 61 bus to Hlavana Stanica. At the train station, the 13 Metro was done for the night, so we had to drop 15 Euro on a taxi to the hostel. When we got to the hostel we registered with the Slovak Police.

In Bratislava we saw the main city center. Old winding cobblestone streets, dotted with shops, restaurants and pubs give it a nice feel. The outskirts are all Soviet Bloc style apartments and factory type deals. Even the metro cars are old Soviet style. Outside the city center – it feels like 1975.
